Hope all of you are well. I spent a worthless day yesterday lying in bed much of the day, very queasy and sick with stomach issues and a bad headache. The headache started Friday at work and I thought it was related to my least favorite monthly female visitor (sorry, Sean!), but am unsure where the other symptoms came from.
Bummer of a way to spend a Saturday, but I was thankful that hubs was around to entertain the kids. I woke up enough to come downstairs for dinner and a movie (chicken noodle soup for me, pizza for them) while we watched "We Bought a Zoo". It was a sweet, heartwarming, and funny movie, and reminded me why I still love Matt Damon, after all these years.Chrissy~ Happy 2nd Lexiversary to you! Marielle
~ How are things going, and how was your weekend? Keep us posted on your thoughts about the house. I tend to agree with Susie....having a house that needs a lot of work can be such a strain financially, emotionally, and physically (if you plan to do a lot of the work yourselves), so it's definitely something to consider very carefully.Sean~
Congrats on the birth of the kittens, but sorry one was born on your bed. Ewwww.
Are you working the daytime shift at the library? I wondered if you've had to adjust your sleeping schedule so you can sleep at night to be ready for work during the day. Missp~
Congrats on the success of Ava's Fundraiser--that's great news! You post about her on Facebook pretty frequently, right? How is she doing? I hope you have a chance to recover from your busy weekend, hon.
Keep us posted on the medical report for your Mom, and we'll keep her in our thoughts and prayers--that her surgery doesn't coincide with the dates of your much needed and well deserved beach trip.Ginnie~
We miss you, hon, and are sorry that Word or Windows 7 ate your post. How was your visit with family?Caryn~
That's so neat how some friends just can't spend enough
time together, and I'm glad your son has one of those. I also love how kids don't realize how loud they can be, when they're trying not to be loud....and they always seem surprised that we parents can hear them.
I, too thought the "visual valentine" might be something extra, although it could be a montage tied up within the scene of Bella letting down her shield, as Lynne described. It just seems like nearly everyone
has referred to it in some way in these recent interviews, and that it coud be attributed to Bill Condon, so that I also thought it might be a "new" scene. Thanks for sharing all the Robcrack today....definitely worth a double, or even triple post. I knew you would love the biceps, and I've really enjoying the watchporn as well.
I've watched a couple of the videos from Comic Con and hope to have time to watch a few more over the next few days. Loved Josh's interview with the trio, as always. The ribbons to honor Gisela were a really nice touch.Lynne~
Who enjoyed looking at those cool cars more....Hubby, or Little Man?
The church dinner at your MIL's sounded delicious, and I know I crave a good steak every once in a while. I. too hope we don't see some "actual" battle at the end of BD Part 2, but we know how Summit loves to ramp up the action and tension, as they did in Volterra at the end of New Moon. Susie~
Silly girl....you're not neglecting us. You need to spend as much time with the kids while you can, especially before they head back to school and real life (for your daughter) this fall. I believe you only have one more week of teaching before you have a well deserved month-long break, right? I'm sure you and Mary will enjoy your annual trek to the cabin next week. How long will you stay, and will you spend time relaxing, reading, visiting, watching movies, walking, etc.? I'm glad to hear things have smoothed over somewhat as far as the cabins are concerned, but am still sorry your SIL treated your parents and the rest of the family in that manner. Regarding painting....I'm not really handy, and painting is about the only thing I can
I painted my son's room a darker blue than I painted when we first moved in seven years ago called Huckleberry, by Sherwin-Williams
. He seems happier and I think he thought the very pastel blue original color was a little too babyish for him. There were scuff marks everywhere and a fresh couple of coats of paint seem to brighten and clean everything up nicely. I hope to repaint my daughter's room next; we're just trying to decide on a color. Enjoy your raspberry pie!
